Half and half

The performance of Wadaiko Yamato that we watched last Saturday (see Tuesday's post) was held in the Sky Dome of SM City North EDSA mall. Half of the dome looks like it is swathed in nylon fabric and the other half stuffed with carpeting. I'm sure it has something to do with acoustics.

Interesting. I don't know if I would want to be up there stuffing the stuffing.

Fascinating photo, and I'm sure you are right about the acoustics. How were they?

Very cool photo. the lighting looks fantastic. Is the dome intended for concerts and musical performance or is it also for sport? I'd figure the fabric would absorb much of the sound.

I'm sure you're right about the acoustics, but it does make for a very interesting photo.

That dome was still under construction during the time when Dad was going in and out of the Veterans hospital...and I never had a chance to pass by it. I'll try to go there and see it for myself.

Neat! From the thumbnails, I thought it was a golden dome!

This is a beautifu dome! Grand by the look of it.

BTW, thank God your area was not much affected by the typhoon.

I didn't know about it until I read the newspaper from two days ago today.

(I've been avoiding news the past fews days ... So many negative things are in the news I'd rather not know about them.)

I really love this kind of structures, but it's a shame if the acoustic is bad...
